Though we have divided this species into three varieties, wJJeh correspond to the
three species of Dr. Wallich, no great importance must be attached to this mode of
grouping, -as a regular gradation can be traced from the most hoary state of a, Jo the
glabrous leaves and' hairy stems of 7. The amount of variation in pubescence in this
species is very remarkable; specimens which, in shape of leaves and flowers, are abso-
lutely •undistinguishable, being often $uite' dissimilarly clothed.

puberula, rarius gkbrescentia, margine cinereo-pubesceatia, Ifclamenta. sepalis bre-,
viora. Achema ovalia, sericeo-pilosa.
SloWers smaller than in 0. JSuckanmiana. They vary .ranch in amount of pubes-
cence. "We can find no characters of importance to separate the different forma
which Mr. Bdgeworth has considered as distinct. His specimens,.which' are now*
before us, certainly .exhibit differences in the shape of the leaves; but we think that
he has not made sufficient allowance for the great amount of variation to -which all
the species of this genus are subject, and feel confident that, with a suite of specimens •
as extensive as that which we possess, he would not even consider them as varieties.
